that the united states has the strongest military in the world. chuck hagel was a soldier and a senator, but he has been also a highly successful executive in both the public and private sectors. he built a successful company from the ground up. he is a man who knows how to prioritize and make tough decisions. he will listen to and carefully consider the views of our military and civilian leaders and guided them as necessary. fifth, i believe that chuck hagel will be a balanced and responsible voice on a nuclear weapons policy. president reagan said it often and said it well -- "nuclear war cannot be won and it must not be fought." as this committee knows, this of a global nuclear war have thankfully, substantially declined since the breakup of the soviet union. but within nine nations possessing nuclear weapons, with a nuclear weapons usable material and knowledge spread across the globe, and with terrorists is to -- terrorists managed to buy, steel, or make one, we face enormous risks that a nuclear weapon would be used if proliferation continues in places like iran and north korea, and if we
